About Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven

By HighYa Research Team
Published on: Mar 13, 2014

The Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven claims to help you cook “easier, flavor-infused meals” up to 70% faster than a conventional oven. In addition, the company claims that the oven’s “moisture-sealed and pressurized” technology ensures that it’s “virtually impossible to dry out or ruin your food.”

The Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven is manufactured by KitchenTek, LLC, based out of Pueblo, CO. Online reviews appear to be primarily negative, with the most common complaints citing cheap construction and poor customer support.

How the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven Works

According to the manufacturer, the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven underwent 2 ½ years of development prior to being released, in order to perfectly combine all the benefits associated with both a pressure cooker and a conventional oven.

Because of this, the company claims that the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven’s “Flavor Infusion Technology” allows you to “make the most moist, flavorful meals you’ve ever had,” and that it will be “the only oven you’ll ever need.”

The oven’s three-position rack (bottom, middle, and broil) is claimed to provide all the same adjustability as your conventional oven, but allows you to “toast, roast, bake, broil, and re-heat food in a fraction of the time.” In fact, despite its relatively small size, the device can accommodate up to a 14lb turkey or a 12in pizza.

When you’re ready to use your Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven, you can choose between two different modes:

  • Pressure Mode – Cooks your food up to 70% faster, while using low pressure to lock in heat, moisture, and flavor.
  • Standard Mode – Works like a conventional oven, while “using a fraction of the energy.”

Whichever mode you choose, the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven can be used in five easy steps:

  1. Turn the oven on, and allow it to quickly preheat (indicated by a green “ready light.”
  2. Add food a lower the sealing lever.
  3. Seal the vent release valve.
  4. Set the timer.
  5. After your food has cooked, open the vent release valve to release any built-up steam.
  6. Enjoy your meal.

When cooking with the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven, you can use your normal pots, pans, and bakeware. On top of this, other than the unit itself, all parts are dishwasher safe.

Keep in mind that when new, you’ll need to run the oven through one full cycle prior to placing food inside, which will burn off any “non-toxic protective oils.” Also, unlike a traditional oven, you’ll need to release pressure inside the unit prior to opening the front door. Failing to do this could result in severe steam burns.

  • Combines many of the benefits of a pressure cooker and conventional oven into one countertop device.
  • Allows you to cook food up to 70% faster, while sealing in moisture and flavor.

  • 60-day money back guarantee.


  • Most common customer complaints cite cheap construction and poor customer support.

The Bottom Line

The majority of customer reviews that we read are from independent bloggers who received a free Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven in exchange for a review.

When looking at non-blog related reviews, most appear to be primarily negative, with some of the most common complaints citing cheap construction and poor customer support.

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise though, as high-quality conventional pressure cookers can cost as much as $400.

When you factor in the fact that the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven also combines the features of a regular oven for just under $300 (Standard Model), the old adage “you get what you pay for” seems relevant.

With this in mind, we did find one very detailed review that stated the same, which was highly complimentary of the oven.

Also, it’s important to note that only poultry cooks 70% faster than a conventional oven. According to the website, beef and pork cook 50% faster, and “casseroles, vegetables and baked goods cook 25% faster.”

All in all, the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven is a unique device that has very little competition. As such, for people who are looking to save time when cooking, the product might be a viable option.

However, keep in mind that it may not be a high-quality appliance, and you may experience difficulty processing a refund or an exchange through customer service.

  • Worst investment ever!

    • By Renee S.,

    My husband bought me the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker oven and I absolutely hate it! The worst part of it is the fact that the whole oven gets hot - so hot that it is a hazard to safety. Another reason that I hate it is because the few times I have attempted to cook something under pressure, it has not made it tender and the cooking time is almost as long as it takes in my regular oven (which doesn't get nearly as hot on the outside as the WGP oven). Now I have this oven that just sits in my kitchen taking up space, which I refuse to use.

    My pressure oven is a refurbished one no less, but it works like a charm, pretty much on a daily basis. It cleans real easy as well, Wally World sells an excellent fume free cleaner. I have purchased a Kabob attachment, which fit like a glove, I am going to make some kabobs tomorrow for the Super Bowl feast. I am equally impressed with its versatility - I make miniature rum cakes and fruit cakes for holiday gifts and never a problem - it's just a matter of READING the instruction and recipe book to understand the concept of pressure cooking, it's a time saver on short notice...now I am looking for a baking basket, is one available? The rotating basket is too small for some things. Thank you - keep me updated of new items.

  • Can't understand negative reviews about Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven

    • By Yvonne M.,

    I have used pressure cookers all my life, toaster ovens for saving energy, etc. When I found the Wolfgang Puck oven...I fell in love. I have a commercial Bluestar stove with a huge convection oven, smaller oven, etc. Yet I always try to use this Puck oven because it's small and saves energy. The plus side is that you can put leftover fried foods in it and pressure heat them to quick awesome crunchiness.

    I'm all about the crunch. I love making eggrolls in large batches and reheating them to crispness in my puck oven.

    Leftover pizza heats to perfect crisp crust without drying out.

    Some things that are thicker I put in microwave for a few seconds to heat the inside, then I crisp it in the Puck oven!

    I couldn't be happier. I have had it for years with not a single problem.

  • Very bad

    I want to get ahold of the owner, this oven timer will not shut off, it automatically stays on. Very very dangerous, it could have burned my house down, killed my dogs. I discovered after I cook for one hour it just kept on staying on. Now I unplugged it, I want a full refund and buyer beware. If my house would have caught on fire the lawsuit would have been so large, he would have lost everything.

  • Cheap product and terrible customer service

    I purchased on the premise of faster cook times, especially not to use big oven. At first fine. But cook times never improved. Foods still took the same as regular oven times.

    I used the oven practically 2-3 times daily. Then, one day, I went to turn it on and heard a "pop", followed by a quick burst of smoke from the dial. Smelled like burnt electrical. I freaked out as it could be a fire hazard. I called their CS and was asked to send it back. I packed carefully and UPS'd back. They promised to resolve.

    Got the runaround for over 22 days. If one cannot have patience, then their CS will upset them. I waited 5 days after verified received and couldn't get a straight answer. This dept, that dept, silliness. After the 3 week wait, they finally told me they were going to take apart the oven to validate my complaint.

    They said no such problem of the dial and blatantly accused me of how much "burn marks" from inside. Well, I cooked a lot of foods that splattered and did best to clean per instructions. But again promised resolve.

    Now it's been over 2 years. I called back twice after waiting about 14 weeks each time. Total runaround still. I had given up calling because it had been almost nine months.

    Now I see many complaints about such a lousy oven and bad CS. Now that I've read all of this has finally made me realize nothing likely to happen.

  • Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven

    I'm very disappointed in the oven. I've contacted customer service and wanted a new on and off knob. They said they didn't have replacement ones, they are made out of plastic and after a couple of months it broke off. Told them they shouldn't be plastic for something you are using all the time. So needless to say, I would not recommend this oven to anyone, and no customer service help either.

    I think this oven is very good. I made roast chicken and it was moist and delicious and cooked all the way through. Sometimes in a standard oven, it's still pink by the bone. I have also made swiss steak and it was tender and moist. As stated in the claims, it does cook food faster. I so far have no complaints, and I don't think it is cheaply made.

  • Stoped heating

    I bought this oven two years ago, and I wish I had read the reviews on it beforehand, I would not have purchased it. After reading the outcomes on the people who did reach out to the company, I'm thinking why bother if they're not going to do anything to help them. I bought the product without researching it because I trusted the Wolfgang product name. good luck everyone.

  • This replaced my large oven

    • By Myla B.,

    I've had this oven for about three years. I've seen all the reviews and can honestly say that I've never had a problem with my oven. It does get dirty, and you have to clean it, but you just have to make sure grease doesn't build up too much. I have made meatloaf, chicken, pork, fish, veggies, toasted bread, lasagna. It's a great oven. It has always performed well. Yes, it does save time, because it has a pressure built up if you choose to use it. You can use it without it as well. If you don't make sure the pressure knob is position correctly, then it won't cook as fast because you won't be engaging the pressure element. It's not complicated. Just make sure the knob is in the correct position. When opening it, if you have it on pressure cook, turn the knob, it releases the pressure. IT IS NOT dangerous, you just have to follow directions. It is simple, and you won't have to turn that huge oven on all time. I forgot, I've bake cookies in it too.

  • I am SO disappointed!

    The pressure part is a farce. I made a recipe out of the cookbook, with close attention to the recipe and the chuck roast (oven beef stew), and after the allotted time, the meat was like a hard ball. The veggies were good and a nice consistency. I am really upset because it doesn't cook like a pressure cooker. I have a range with two ovens and a roaster that does a fabulous job on turkey. I don't need another plain old oven. I would return it if I haven't thrown away the packing material.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
